11 Healthy Comfort Food Recipes You'll Fall in Love With This Fall! #comfortfood #healthyrecipes #fallDo you find yourself craving healthy comfort food come fall?

I sure do.

This time of year I find myself waxing and waning between wanting to hang on to daylight savings time as long as I can, and yearning for nightfall to come so I can hunker down to a piping hot bowl of chili with my family at the dinner table.

Perhaps in my sweats or flannel jammies, and maybe followed up by an apple cinnamon oatmeal crisp for dessert.

Somehow the shorter days make comfort food all the more respectable, especially if it’s nourishing and bursting with fall produce like these healthy comfort food recipes are.

Pull up a chair and join me at the table for these healthy comfort food recipes. No need to get dressed up. PJ’s are just fine 🙂
